Parent Involvement In Mid-America Head Start
The number one indicator in a child's success in school is whether his or her family is involved and active in his/her learning. Head Start is successful because it serves the family, not just the child.
Parents can get involved in Head Start in many ways:
- Get involved with your child's school — get to know the staff, join your center's policy committee, attend a Parents' Night Out, volunteer at your child's school, or sign up for educational events.
- Keep a learning culture in your home — Use home materials and family routines and conversations to help your children learn concepts, develop language and other skills, and explore feelings.
- Spend quality time with your child — eat meals together, talk during bath time, read together at bed time, do family activities on weekends.
